Buffalo Bites

Jan 30, 15 Buffalo Bites

By Kelly Bogard

The 2014 football  season officially ends this Sunday. The teams have been picked and the commercials are cued. Now it’s time to pick out the food. There are all kinds of things to eat during a Super Bowl party  like Fiesta Corn Dip or Triple Meat Pizza Bread. But none are like this week’s recipe.

Buffalo wings are a classic football food. Now, there’s a way to have the flavor of the wings, but not the calories. Better yet,  you get to lose the bones, so clean-up is a breeze.

5 ways agriculture plays in the Super Bowl

Jan 27, 15 5 ways agriculture plays in the Super Bowl

By Julie Tomascik

Chicken wings. Peanuts. And you can’t forget the pigskins, give or take a few pounds of air. Those can mean only one thing. Super Bowl weekend.

The biggest game of the year is just a few days away.

And while New England Patriots fans pray for good passes from Tom Brady and Seattle Seahawks fans hope Russell Wilson can run the ball, I’m pulling for agriculture.

Wait. That’s not a team.

Agriculture may not get much recognition–if any–but it’s a major player in the game. And Texas agriculture is part of that role, even if the game isn’t in Texas this year.

Whether it’s cold or warm, we all love a good meal. One that’s tasty and light, but always filling.

It’s even better when preparations are quick and easy. Sweet aromas fill the air. And clean up is almost non-existent.

This week’s recipe is a little of all three and perfect for this weekend.

Small steps. Big victories.

Jan 20, 15 Small steps. Big victories.

By Jessica Domel

Small actions lead to big results.

It’s around this time of year that many of my friends will give up on their New Year’s resolutions.

It could be that it’s impossible to healthily lose 50 pounds in one week. Or that you can’t go from junk food three times a week to swearing off fried foods cold turkey.

But it’s not impossible. Okay, maybe the 50 pounds in one week is, but the overall goals aren’t. It’s possible to lose weight in a healthy manner. It’s possible to reduce the number of calories you take in.

Tamale Pie

Jan 16, 15 Tamale Pie

By Kelly Bogard

Sometimes a cold and dreary day can spark genius. It happened while having lunch with several Texas Farm Bureau co-workers and talking about what types of food we like in the winter. Of course, as Texans, Tex-Mex was quite high on the list. As well as things like stew and potato soup.

We all have a love of tamales, but they’re very time-consuming to make and take a special touch to make them just right. And I don’t have that touch. I’ve tried and they’re not pretty at all. I do, however, have a way for you to get that wonderful flavor without the hours of work.
